Thanks to Laughing Squid, I came across one of the most incredible award winning short animations from the husband and wife team of Christopher and Christine Kezelos. Originally based in Australia, they now run Zealous Creative out of Los Angeles. The creators description of this yarn tale: “Born into a world of numbers, an oppressed zero discovers that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something.”
Take a look:

And a behind the scenes video as well.

As the saying goes…two heads are better than one! 🙂
I’m sharing this one!
great short – thanks for sharing it.
I was expecting that the zero would pair up another non-zero number to become a big group especially if you got about six zeros together.
Six zeros and some other number and you have a million or more.
Yep, all they needed was a group of zeros and one little one to be on their side.
Aw man, I wish I had a few more minutes to watch all of both of these right now… they look so cool… I’ll be back!
I know. I am on a crappy wifi so I had to start the first one pause it and then walk away for 30 minutes for the rest to download so I could watch it.
Been there, done that. Repeatedly.
Blahahaha, I used that voice over dude for a doco several years ago 🙂
He is very good. You need to use him more.
I don’t like where this is headed.
I like it!!
I can’t watch it on my phone and I am away from an internet connection until Monday. I will trust you that it is funny and laugh now and watch it Monday.
Trust me. As I said, it took me an hour to download on my bad connection this week but it was worth it.
It’s amazing what some people can do with an idea … and talent … and stuff.
note: I thought the baby would be a “10” … but I was wrong; I usually am.
I was thinking “10” too.
Yep me too I had my money on a 10.
LOL @ Their denominators were not allowed to multiply.
Apparently they reproduced by division instead, so the inifite result. The only problem I see is with the two heads. If the doctors separate them, both of them will look like zeroes…
I am surprised none of the 2-9’s realized that either. They aren’t as smart as they thought.
Very clever yarn !
He weaves a good tale.
But it ain’t quite String Theory…
But it has a beat.
omg that was awesome!
don’t u lurve it when i use cool acronyms. all the kids are doing it, among other things.
That wasn’t infinity, it was just a double zero on a two-headed freak! Really good, though.
shhh…dont say it so loud
Takes too long to download on my PC–I trust it’s funny though.
Go to starbucks for a faster connection..haha
It was rather sad. The 2 headed freak baby was cool though
Sad but you knew it would work out for him in the end.
What a truly adorable film
Thanks…I thought so too.
Wow!Excellent creation here with a nice theme.I like it.
